I just read a topic posted on the Spark Business Community Team about posting your points early.
Seems that it bothers some folks that others are posting their points ahead of time, seemingly in the food department.
So I read these comments, and this is what I have come up with.
It is all Much Ado About Nothing!
I mean, why should I care if someone posts points ahead of time?? I mean, what business is it of MINE?
I have enough on my plate (pun intended) without policing others.
It is totally MY business what points I log for my food, exercise, water, etc.
After all, who am I trying to lose weight for? MYSELF. I cannot lose weight or cut calories for any one else. And I am certainly not willing or interested in policing others.
I have no interest in the Spark Police coming to my house.
I have teammates to encourage, support and interact with, and they give the same back to me.
The key here is ENCOURAGE!!! Not snipe at one another.
I am not competing with anyone other than myself.
We each have joined Spark for our own reasons. Some to lose weight, some to learn healthier ways of living, some to ward off loneliness.
Does it really matter WHY we join? Isn't the fact that we joined enough?
This thing is a "to thine own self be true" process, and any other opinions are MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.
So I will stay with my teams, my friends and my coaches. I will bring what I can to the banquet of life on Spark.
But I will NOT participate in finger pointing.
I think this entire subject ought to be taboo.
Now, I think I have said my piece. Time to work out.
Love you guys!!! WE can do it!!!
